Saying Goodbye to 2018

I’m going to begin this post with an excerpt from a writing of Joan Didion. I’m telling you this only so that you’ll know that isn’t to be the entirety of this post. “Some years passed, but I still did not lose the sense of wonder about New […]

Poetess

I’ve dared to look upon the stars in wonder, in awe, and dream. I’ve dared to think for myself and challenge that thinking, to question it, to ponder my own existence. I’ve dared to believe in love, to hope, to have faith. I’ve dared to write poetry only […]

The Prophet, Kahlil Gibran

“Then Almitra said, speak to us of Love. And he raised his head and looked upon the people, and there fell a stillness upon them. And with a great voice he said: When love beckons to you, follow him, though his ways are hard and steep. And when […]

To Be Happy

I’ve been exceptionally busy lately with no end to that in sight. I haven’t done any writing or editing in at least a week. So it goes sometimes. I was taking something of an unintentional “moment” as it were anyway, to catch my metaphorical breath. I follow Architectural […]

Be In Love With Your Life

I took about a two-week break from working on anything at all writing wise and that was about as much of a break from writing as I could manage. As for what I’m working on, the thing about that is that it doesn’t matter, until the work is […]

On This Valentines Day

  One of the most wonderful things within the many fine and good examples that Bruce Lee left us with, is his example of inclusiveness. Despite being met with prejudice throughout his life, he seemed to hold no such feelings in his own heart. He continuously broke with […]

Too, as in, Also…

fromย  ‘Gold Mine’ _____this true heart______________ I will write your name on every breath from now until forever, forget you never, know that I have not let go of this true heart. Forgiving you and him and them and everyone, everything, sing ever louder, stronger, taking claim of […]

Why I Write Fiction

Sometime last winter, I posted on a temporary page that I had going on that I was going to write this particular thing, and then I was going to write that thing, and then I was going to write this other thing. Then I looked at it and […]

Journey With My Heart

Do you know what we have? Something that time will never touch, distance is no match for it, we are lucky to have it as such. Something simple, yet misunderstood, in all of its honesty, around my life I wear the pearls, of wisdom, learned from its rarity. […]

I Could Write All Day

Of the nights I spent in love with you I could write all day though hindsight has seen fit to show me that it was never quite that way so I’ll pretend I’m not in love with you and then there’s nothing left to say. 1/31/95 I’ve been […]

Strong. Woman.

This statue, this sculpture, this piece of art, is how I feel, today, at forty-seven and a half years old. I don’t recall where I grabbed this picture from so I apologize for not crediting whomever the artist (Penny Hardy) is. In addition to music, I also occasionally […]

Letting Go is a Grace…

ย Letting go is an art, and a grace, something not so much to be learned as practiced. I think to myself… If that was meant to be mine, then it would have been. If it is meant to be mine, then it will be. It makes it easy […]

Psalm of The Beautiful Dream.

I am being quiet because there is a voice that I need to hear, it is my own. I am choosing simplicity because I can. I remind myself to claim each day with intention. I am choosing calm over chaos. I am believing for restoration. Knowing and having […]

Muse.

To speak of The Muse is to speak of The Ethereal, The Inspired. The walls shook with the sound of cascading thunder, the windows vibrating in their frames. In a burst of light, the panes became liquid beneath my finger tips, I watched the circles fan away from […]
